Dangerous Beautifully of American Samoa

Dangerous Beautifully of American Samoa on Hot Topics -- American Samoa is the small pacific island far away from Pacific. It is about 8,000 miles from California.

60 minutes, CBS program, went to American Samoa to find out why the territory with a population less than the capacity of average pro-football stadium to send more player to the NFL than any other area of the same size in the mainland USA. As it is seen the program, Somoa kids are 56 times more likely to play in the NFL than other American.

The reason behind Samoa kids are more likely to be draft is their large size and chores they perform in the daily activity such as cooking and cutting grass. The activities make them energetic and more atheletic for the game. The territory has sent about 10 NFL linemen who played Somoan high school ball including Cincinnati Bengal’s Dorriata Peko and Pittsburg Troy Polamalu.

The governor of American Samoa hopes talks to be held in Hawaii will enable residents of the U.S. territory to watch CBS programming live, instead of on a tape-delayed basis.

Gov. Togiola Tulafono says he hopes to have the issue resolved in time for American Samoans to watch the live telecast of the Super Bowl on Feb. 7.

To that end, Tulafono is to meet this coming week in Honolulu with officials of CBS affiliate KGMB to discuss the possibility of a live feed via an undersea fiber optic cable.
